Across the Map: Maine Car Shipping Services
The state of Maine is the northernmost state in the contiguous U.S. as well as the easternmost; nestled in the northeastern corner of the country is not the most ideal location when it comes to transporting a vehicle, but it’s an amazing state for tourists and vacationists. Ranking 41st in total population and 39th in total area, Maine is home to just 1.3 million residents; with its largest city, Portland, having 66,000, much of Maine’s population is spread out in smaller communities, which also can make it difficult for auto transporters to get to or from the state without breaking the bank. Maine was originally a part of Massachusetts until 1820, when the Missouri Compromise brought Missouri in as a slave state and Maine in as a free state, coinciding with Maine’s desire to become its own independent state anyway.

The only major interstate that runs into Maine is Interstate 95, which is both a good thing and a bad thing. It’s a good thing because it’s one of the most heavily-traveled interstates in the country and one of the most popular routes for car transporters to utilize due to how many major cities it runs through as well as its length. However, being the only interstate in Maine is quite a deterrent for many auto transporters, particularly because I-95 north of Boston, really, connects minor towns and cities to the rest of the world. This makes it more difficult for auto transporters to make money on shipments to or from Maine – hence higher prices and longer wait times for transportation to or from the state. Usually in the winter months Maine auto shipping services are going to be few and far between – the state sees heavy snow during the depths of the winter months, which can cause major problems for auto transporters – and auto transport customers.
